Private inquisitor Jak Barley is ready for some down time after battling Ghennison Viper Mages, being attacked by piss dragons, and fighting off priests of Dorga the Fished Headed God of Death. That is why Jak was not a bit amused to have a scruffy mage insist that he is to be one of a group of questers decreed in an ancient prophecy that must cross the icy Alf Mountains to foil the return of the Old Gods. To do so meant using a map all too heavily dotted with "Here Be..." warnings that read like an "Idiot's Guide to Monsters." And why are Westian Lizard Wizards targeting young red-headed maidens and who is behind the numerous and bizarre attacks upon Jak? Once gain Jak finds himself saying, "I hate adventures."

About the Author
Dan Ehl has been a journalist and editor at both weeklies and daily newspapers in Iowa. The winner of numerous journalism and photo awards, including first in humor from the National Society of Newspaper Columnists, he enjoys breaking out of dryer newspaper writing to pen fantasy novels. He served in Germany as an Army photographer during the Vietnam War. "With a lot of Vietnamese lining pits with sharpened stakes for people just like me, I knew I wasn't wanted. I didn't want to be rude and show up anyway. Being from Iowa, we always try to be polite. Stationed in Germany during the early 1970s was interesting enough with the barracks on weekends smelling of beer, vomit and hashish." His favorite hobbies are hitchhiking and hopping freights.
